Stephen Speaks Feet Wet

Standing at the water’s edge, I feel a trembling fear

As the waves crash ’round my ankles feel the thunder in my ear

I see the change is coming, the wind is at my back

But doubt overtakes me and my eyes turn to black

My past lurks behind me, keeping me on guard

I don’t want to chance it, these steps are just too hard

I know He’s behind me but what can I do

I’m frail, I’m human, and I don’t want to fail you

{I can’t walk on water with these dirty feet

But He can walk on water and He’ll carry me}

So put your arms around me carry me to sea

Waves knock against me but I know I’m free

From death and loneliness, darkness, despair

This life is choppy but I don’t care

[chorus again]
